Just imagine, your bidding on laying down asphalt for a location, the old method would mean you have to drive to the site, get out a measuring or surveying device, measure the area then calculate all the properties you need to come up with “the bid”.
How many places can you visit a day, how many people does that take, how much fuel, time per hour?
This is just one instance where Planswift Takeoff software is the most useful tool in your contracting arsenal.
With our new Google maps plug in you simply use the map to hover over the area your bidding on, click on a button, the map image gets scaled to your measuring properties, then simply draw you lines around the property to get a square foot measurement of the area to be asphalted, all from your desk, one person, one computer and the ability to estimate and submit hundreds of bids a day not 2 or 3.
